Fundamentals of Tribology and Bridging the Gap Between the Macro and Micro/Nanoscales


Fundamentals of Tribology and Bridging the Gap Between the Macro and Micro/Nanoscales Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The state of the art of tribology is described, on both macro and micro/nano scales, by internationally recognised scientists working on both fundamental and applied aspects. The history of the subject is covered, followed by instrumentation, basic theories and the latest results on friction, wear, lubrication and industrial applications. Both experimental and computer modelling research are covered, with the emphasis throughout being on applied aspects. The book covers science and engineering topics that are not typically available to students in any structured university curriculum or special course.
